Where do Gus Edwards and Najee Harris fall in the Week 11 fantasy RB rankings? Check out the latest as you lock in your lineup.

With the teams on bye far less impactful this week than last, the fantasy RB rankings in the middle range are likely to determine a matchup or two in your league. Here’s how I stack up the running backs for the fantasy football week ahead.

The Top RBs To Start in Week 11

Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins

Through 10 weeks, Mostert is averaging 5.6 yards per carry and has scored 13 times. He’s been nothing short of phenomenal in posting seven top-20 finishes and a trio of top-three finishes.

In the midst of all of that production, he has two games with more than 13 carries and just two games with more than three targets. Achane is coming back this week to muddy this backfield against a defense that rarely creates pressure and can be systematically picked apart through the air (bottom 10 in opponent CMP%).

There are a lot of paths to failure here. Of course, a Miami blowout win is also a possibility, and that would allow both Achane and Mostert to produce in a significant way. With my rankings, I’m sitting on the fence a bit — Achane is a high-end RB2, while Mostert checks in as a low-end RB2, both carrying a reasonably wide range of outcomes due to a lower touch projection.

Brian Robinson Jr., Washington Commanders

I’m running away if I can. I don’t want to say that Robinson’s stock is destined to experience a GameStop-like stock drop, but I’m not not saying that is an outcome that I’m considering. How worried am I?

Through 10 weeks, Robinson is scoring once every 17.6 touches. That number might not be shocking without context, but allow me to help.

  • Robinson, 2022: TD once every 71.3 touches
  • Barry Sanders, 1991: TD once every 22.5 touches

Yes. This season, Robinson’s per-touch scoring rate is 22% greater than Sanders’ highest-scoring season of his Hall of Fame career. That’s a real stat.

Robinson is a fine player. He’s also the lead back (barely last week, 31-29 snap edge over Antonio Gibson) in an aggressive offense. Understood. But what he is doing is so far beyond unsustainable.

Robinson has one game with more than 10 carries since Week 4, and yet, he’s finished as a viable fantasy starter in every game over that stretch thanks to crossing the goal line.

When (not if) the TD luck dries up, there are major floor concerns. Due to committees and tough matchups, Robinson still finds himself inside of my top 25 (barely), but there isn’t a player in the sport I’m more aggressively shopping.
